I've been having my nails professionally manicured for more than six years. In the beginning they were polished with a clear top coat. After awhile I started having them done in one of the Essie pale pink colors that the shop owned. When I couldn't get the color I wanted from week to week, I started buying the sheer French Manicure colors from Orly. Last year I started using some of the shop's light neutrals or pinks from OPI. My manicurist brought out a bottle from their secret stash one day that was just a bit bolder. (It's a discontinued color that is the favorite of another customer.) In the last couple of months I've started using really rich OPI colors. Started off one week with just the pinkie on each hand, progressed to all the fingers of one hand and for the last couple of weeks both hands. Last week it was Japanese Cherry Blossom. This week it's Pink Flamingo. I brought both that color and another called Sweet Heart (pale pink) and let the manicurist choose the color. She choose the the one that is more fun. ;-)

I wish I could have my nails done up so…! Unfortunately my work destroys my hands…especially my nails.

Well, today is Australia Day, so I've gone patriotic with green & gold - a green base coat with gold crackle over the top, finished off with clear gloss.

Yesterday was my second ever manicure and first ever combo; mani/pedi/eyebrow wax. Toes are bright blue but fingers are a French manicure and I have every intention to wear them to work tomorrow. Not so sure that I will but I sure want to.

China glaze "rush" its a pearl color with high gloss enamel top coat. Toes are actually same color but the top coat is a high gloss enamel with glitter in it.

I did this color to match my pearl necklace and bracelet. Looks nice.

I only occasionally do my fingers (unlike my toes). When I do, usually go with a pink shade, sometimes purple. Usually only for a day. I also do them clear, which I leave on until they start to look bad.
